The Kentucky Wildcats (27-10, 12-6 SEC) have advanced to the ELITE 8 and will take on the Michigan Wolverines (28-8, 15-3 Big Ten) on Sunday in Indianapolis at 5:05 PM (Eastern). If I’ve been reading correctly, Kentucky and Michigan haven’t played each other since a tournament game back in the Fab 5 era. Time for a new Fab 5! The Vegas folks have spoken and this is the first game of the tournament that the Cats are favored by the gambling folks–the initial line opened at UK winning by 2 points. There’s still no official word on Willie Cauley-Stein’s injury, but a lot of people are speculating that he might be done for the season. Let’s hope not!

Our favorite place to discuss all things UK basketball with fellow CAT fans is over at CatsIllustrated. There are normally a few thousand people online during games and usually 1,000+ people online on days where there aren’t any games. There are topics about all things UK basketball here. I must warn you though, people can get extremely crazy after a UK loss.
